Gnawing Nausea feeling everyday I wake up

I'm 24 and have had this nausea feeling everyday I wake up for the past 2 years.  It's not to the point of throwing up, but it certainly is dabilitating.  
I have done many types of kidney clenses, even though the doctors don't see anything wrong with my kidneys, and nothing has helped.  I've been using Cran-max, antioxidants, and even done the Brummels Lemonade diet for 10 days. (2 tps lemon juice, 1/10 cayanne pepper, 2 tps maple syrup, and water)

I also suffer from severe fatique along with it.

Doctors have obviously not found anything wrong with me according to blood work.  Most doctors have been trying to convince me it's a mental thing.

Please help,

D-man

I hate when doctors try suggest it's mental just because they don't know what's wrong.  I'm 25 and have been fighting with GERD and LPR for 1.5 years when some doctors gave up on me.  As soon as I left my hometown for the big city, some new specialists found stuff right away.  

I'm no doctor myself, but have they looked at the possibilities of reflux disease?  Do you have any heartburn, vocal problems, bad taste, or throat problems with your nausea?  And how late do you eat before bedtime?  Do different foods make any difference?  

Also, have they looked at your production of digestive enzymes?  Perhaps you are not breaking down food properly?  Any changes in your bowel movements?  

I'm just suggesting a few things since I've been educating myself heavily for a long time. Hopefully something will be helpful soon.  Hang in there, D-man. Good luck and God bless.

Actually I've had an endoscopy and they found nothing.  It's not a heartburn feeling, nor acid reflux...tried various medications for that and hasn't helped.  
Definately the least I eat the nausea isn't AS bad, but still there.  I try not to eat anytime after 10p.m. before I go to bed.  I have been taking digestive enzymes, but all that does is make go to the bathroom more.  
I tend to burb alot so I don't vomit, and have had gas for the longest time.  
My stomach constantly gurgles, and when I push on my kidneys I feel more sick to my stomach.
What is going on?

Could be you have delayed gastric emptying. Your symptoms are consistent with that disorder. Basically, the muscles and nerves of the stomach aren't creating enough motility to push things through, thus the nausea, etc. It makes sense that it is worse in the morning, since you don't have gravity to help empty your stomach.
Ask your doctor about a gastric emptying scan. It's an easy test, you eat a small meal, and they take x rays as the food digests to see how long it takes. It is also known as gastroparesis, and although it is considered uncommon, I believe it happens much more frequently and is simply misdiagnosed.
Try sleeping with your head elevated, if you can't do it in bed, try sleeping in a recliner or on the sofa a couple of nights, and see if that helps. Also avoid foods high in fat and fiber, those are harder to digest. Good luck.

my daughter is 19 1/2 and just had her gallbladder removed after a year and a half of pain, nausea & testing. Every doctor, even the surgeon, made comments about stress and the power of the brain, etc. Yes, stress & emotion play a role in your entire body, but you know when it is not just stress..that something physical is wrong.

What tests have you had? & what foods bother you?

My daughter had 2 EGD's, and ultrasound, small bowel biopsy, bile sample analysis, small bowel follw thru and 2 HIDA scans. It was the HIDA scans that showed her gallbladder to be non-functioning....EVERY other test...INCLUDING blood work, came back normal. No hiatal hernia, no H. Pylori, no ulcers, slight gastritis on the 2nd EGD...

So far....4 1/2 weeks post op..she is feeling very good...can eat basically whatever she wants to.

It sure is frustrating in the testing process though....hang in there & keep asking questions..keep researching.

Hi gardenmaniac,

  Sounds like a very similar situation, and I have never had an HIDA scan before.  That could be a start.  The EGD I had about 6 months ago showed nothing.  
Pretty much ANY type of food makes me sicker to my stomach.
I also have been feeling SO fatiqued, on top of the nausea, that I can't do too many things.  
Did your daughter have any fatique?  
So far I've had a lower GI, and endoscopy...plus hundreds of various blood tests.

Did she feel anything from her kidneys?
Sometimes when I push on my kidneys I feel more nauseated.  
I've also had blood tests on my kidneys and they've seen nothing.  

Thanks for your suggestions so far.
